Ms. Molly Kerr
Hi there! Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! It will be a great one!
I am Molly (Mary) Kerr and this is the beginning my 9th year here at Northwood . Each year just gets better than the last. And LAST YEAR was a great one filled with lots of learning, fun and growth- academically, behaviorally and emotionally for all involved. I absolutely love being a Special Education teacher. It is my calling for sure. In my earlier years I was a missionary in south India and in southern Australia. When I came back to the states I was an office manager for a small communications business. When August rolled around and all the children and my teacher friends went back to school, I found myself yearning to join them. SO, I did, that was 24 years ago and have never looked back!
I graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma with a major/minor in biology. I was lucky enough to do some of my coursework at Umass Boston, as well as , Oklahoma Christian University. I received my K-12 Special Education certification right here in San Antonio at UTSA. Currently I am working on my Mindful Schools certification through Mindful Schools. org. My teaching backgroud is broad and varied from working with medically fragile children, running a BoysTown behavior unit, opening a Content Mastery program that was used model for visiting districts, starting the redirection class here at Northwood and of course, providing Resource and Co-teach services.
I consider it a great honor to work with your child. My desire is to daily help them build upon their strengths and to fill the gaps in their perceived weaknesses. As a parent of three energetic teens myself, I want to hear your concerns for your child and work together with you to address those needs. Please, do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to a fun-filled , productive year with you and your child!
